Back to Quilting

Today was a fun day for me. I got a chance to sit down at my machine and sew. I pulled out this quilt that I ambitiously started a LONG time ago. I followed this amazing tutorial from Obsessively Stitching and while it was easy to follow, I got overwhelmed and stopped. Now that I am a much more seasoned sewist (haha, I just like that word) I decided I would go back. Let me just tell you there were a lot of issues with these seams. I had to break out the seam ripper and these were the best of all of the blocks. I have a stack of blocks that I am going to have to do some serious doctoring on but hey, I am up to the challenge. One thing that hasn't changed is my love of this fabric. I love the bright orange, the chairs and the pops of green as much as I did when I started this baby.
I also finished the top for my friend's wedding gift quilt. I hope to finish that one this week. It has been fun to get back to quilting and I managed to clean the fridge out to, Go ME!


   Opps, this pic is a bit jacked up. You get the point. Oh, and this was pre-rearranging the blocks to get the best placement.
